Tuesday night, my church craft group got together to make fabric flowers and zipper flowers. It was my first time makeing either one. I like how my zipper flower turned out. Not bad for a first try. I won't even try to explain how to do it though. I will say that we used hot glue to secure ours, not a needle and thread.
There are tons of pics for inspiration here, and more ideas at craftaholicsanonymous, rileyblakedesigns, and I really like this one on a headband. Putting them in a container for a flower display is so cute, fun as a bracelet too. Just do a search for zipper flower tutorials or pictures and you'll have all sorts of ideas to look at. Have fun!
